Welcome to the start of a new year! As we look forward to all the possibilities and opportunities that the year ahead holds, it’s always fun to add a little magic to the mix.
One way to do this is by creating a New Year’s Spell Jar, a simple ritual that combines the power of intention setting with the creativity of DIY crafting.
What is a New Year’s Spell Jar?
A spell jar is a magical tool that can be used to focus and amplify your intentions, whether they be related to love, abundance, protection, or any other aspect of your life.
The process of creating the jar itself is a form of meditation and visualization as you focus your energy and attention on the things you want to manifest in the coming year.
Materials Needed for a New Year’s Spell Jar
To create your very own New Year’s Spell Jar, you will need a few materials: a small jar or container with a lid, a piece of paper and a pen, and a selection of small items to fill the jar, such as crystals, herbs, coins, feathers, or other meaningful trinkets.
You may also want to gather decorative elements such as ribbon, paint, or stickers to add a personal touch to your jar.
Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a New Year’s Spell Jar
Step 1: Set your intention. Take a few moments to close your eyes and think about what you hope to achieve in the coming year. Write down your intention on the piece of paper in a positive and present tense statement, such as “I am healthy and happy” or “I am abundant and successful.”
Step 2: Choose your items. Consider what each item you’ve gathered represents and how it relates to your intention. For example, you might choose a crystal for healing and protection or a feather for creativity and inspiration.
Step 3: Fill your jar. As you add each item to the jar, focus on your intention and visualize it coming to fruition. Hold the item in your hand and say a short prayer or affirmation, such as “I am grateful for the abundance that is coming my way” or “I am protected and safe.”
Step 4: Seal your jar. Once you have filled the jar with your chosen items, close the lid and seal it with a ribbon or decorative sticker.
Step 5: Display your jar. Place your spell jar in a special place where you can see it every day, such as on your altar or nightstand. Every time you see the jar, take a moment to focus on your intention and visualize it coming true.
